Update:  40 Things Before I'm 40....
Oh, snap!  
It's May!
How did that happen?
It also means I'm 6 months away from the big 4-0.  And it also means I'm 6 months away from completing this list.  I'm not doing too badly....actually!

Here's the update.  

5. Go on a trip to somewhere I've never been (airport layovers don't count).
--In May we're going up to the North Shore...someplace I've never been!  Photos to come after the trip!  We're staying in a bed & breakfast....yum!

9. Pay off my credit card and shred it when it's paid off

--DONE!  D....O....N....E....done!  Whoooo! (and the cards have been shredded well before I paid it off so that I couldn't add to the debt).  

14. Go out to the Split Rock Light House on Lake Superior
--Doing this in May!

16. Research my family tree and find out more on my dad's father (he was adopted and we have very little information on his biological family).

--I've hit a serious dead end with this one.  But!  I did find out more about my grandma's family (my dad's mom) and discovered that I am able to be a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution!

19. Try every drink on the Caribou Coffee menu

--Seriously, people.  This one is a no brainer.  DONE!  And they've added new drinks....and yep!  DONE!

23. See a shuttle launch 

--We actually made plans to go in April, but with my new job we couldn't do it.  DARN IT!

25. Read the entire Harry Potter series again


28. Go to a Minnesota Orchestra Concert

--DONE!  We did this right after my birthday!

31. Take at least one course online and finish it

--I wrote this when I worked for the online university where I could take classes for free.  I don't work there now, so this one may be a challenge to find something I like.  Sadly, my new school is a state run school, which means I'm union, which means I can't take classes for free for 3 years.  So....any ideas?  

33. Own something with the new UND nickname (I don't have to like it...)

--Well.  This may not happen due to the fact that the ND House and Senate have blocked the name change!!  

34. Learn to make artisan bread

--DONE!  I have photos to post (once I download them)...

36. Make a birthday calendar and send cards to those who have a birthday

--Done(calendar) and In progress (on the cards).  I have been doing this throughout the year!

38. Make 100 handmade greeting cards


40. Watch every episode of Friends (believe it or not, have not seen them all...)

--I'm on Season 4 right now!

To be clear, this update was more for me than anyone else, because I needed a swift kick in the rear-end on this list!

I've got free tix to Split Rock that are good until May 31. Let me know how many you need and I will send them your way. Or stop in on the way up and pick them up.

LOVE IT!!! You're knocking them out!

...me?... I never even got around to MAKING A LIST!!!! ... how sad is that?

Wow, you're good. I always start lists or month-long projects and just lose interest soon after I start. Keep at it! I love that making 100 handmade greeting cards was on the list. Makes me want to get my rear in gear and get on with my stationery projects.

I'll complete #31 for you... because I love you more than my luggage!
